Greg Clark new Secretary of State for DCLG

Posted by Sara Hanrahan on

Details of Cameron's new Government have been announced this afternoon. One of the key surprises is the appointment of former Universities Minister, Greg Clark MP, as Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The outgoing Minster, Eric Pickles MP, tweeted earlier: "I could not wish for a better successor than @gregclarkmp He will do a fantastic jog. More announcements later in the week of my new role". The typo of "jog" instead of "job" has led to many further amusing tweets!

We await news of where Eric Pickles, father of NPPF, is off to next as there has still been no announcement.
